The Billecart Brut Reserve is a light, fine and harmonious champagne. It is made up of a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from three different years and sourced from the best sites in the Champagne region.
Founded in 1818, the Billecart-Salmon house carefully nutures its 50 hectare domaine, sourcing its grapes from a total surface area of 170 hectares. Most of the grapes come from within a 20km radius around Epernay, home to the greatest vintages of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. The Billiecart-Salmon House has preserved ancestral vinification methods handed down from generation to generation over almost 200-years and constantly perfects them.
Everywhere in the world, Billecart-Salmon is celebrated as special Champagne enjoying a constant and extensive presence on the world's finest wine lists. Almost all of the 23 Michelin Restaurants in Paris serve Billecart-Salmon by the glass. It is rarely discounted, due to tight global allocations with demand outstripping supply.
